Day 314

Epic Quiz

This evening I was helping at a quiz for my sister’s charity.

It was a really brilliant, if somewhat exhausting, with a fab turnout.

People never fail to amaze me with their generosity and willingness to participate in quizzes and other events.

Lots of money was raised and everyone had a good time. Win win.

Uganda – Day 1

So today my Dad, sister and my sister’s sister-in-law (confused yet?!) head off to Uganda.

We are going to visit the This is Epic the projects in Kyotera.

I have never been to Africa (except Egypt but that doesn’t feel like real Africa!) so I am really excited.

I am hoping to blog about my experiences whilst I am out there.

So today we left Guernsey set at 10.15am, got an airport transfer to Heathrow and and we have to wait until 8pm tonight. We are on a night flight to Dubai and then we have to get another flight to Entebbe

Think we might be pretty tired by this time tomorrow!

A year in pictures – Day 218

Y-front runSuper busy day but we started off with going to watch the Y-front run.

This is a brilliant event run by This is Epic which encourages runners to participate in a 10k run or a shorter fun run – it also then asks people to wear y-fronts whilst they do it. This year participants were encouraged to decorate their pants, and most people wore them on top of their running clothes, although there were a few who just wore pants!

This is my cousin’s wife Vicky, sporting a fantastic pair of pants which were decorated beautifully by her daughter Rosalie. She even included a tail! Great work!

A year in pictures – Day 195

Epic Iron Man

This week my crazy brother-in-law Philip and his friend Warren have been attempting to do 7 iron man triathalons in 7 days.

That means, a 2.5 mile swim in the sea, 112 miles on the bike followed by a full marathon.

Ridiculous!

Warren has had to pull out as he was so exhausted and Philip is just completing day 5.

The Mister went down to run some of the marathon with him and he was joined by my nephew for part of his first lap.

Whilst Philip and I don’t always see eye to eye on things, I am so proud of him for attempting this. He is incredibly fit and has the most astounding mental strength I think I have ever seen. I am still not sure whether he will complete but whether he does or doesn’t he will have taken himself to the limits.

2016 Project366 (Day 308)

This is Epic!I am super proud of my sister and brother-in-law as the charity they started won the Overseas Charity of the Year for at the 2016 Guernsey Community Foundation Awards.

I am super proud of them and This is Epic is changing so many lives and a high profile award such as this really helps to highlight the amazing work that Epic does. Their function is very simple and they use something called Village Savings and Loans. The website is well worth a read if you want to know more information.

2016 Project366 (Day 261)

Epic CakesThis evening I helped my sister out with organising a quiz for their charity This is Epic.

It was a fantastic evening and we raised lots of money and everyone had a good time.

Of course I was in charge of the cake table… always trust a Le Tissier to sort out the pudding table!

2016 Project366 (Day 255)

Epic12

Another insane This is Epic event, this time running a 10k circuit for 12 hours overnight.

As usual the set up was fab but the start and finish at the Vale Castle was just spectacular.

Great venue and great job everyone!

2016 Project366 (Day 251)

7 September 2016

In a couple of weeks my sister is involved with another charity fundraiser for This is Epic.

Thankfully this fundraiser does not involve a single pair of trainers but instead plenty of cake and alcohol at a quiz!

Tonight we had a planning meeting, in a pub, with gin. Perfect.

2016 Project366 (Day 178)

Y-front run

My brother-in-law has been involved in helping to organise a y=front run to raise money for This is Epic and MUG.

We went down to offer our support to all the insane people who went out wearing their saggy underpants and completed the run. The atmosphere was fab and everyone did a great job even if it was pretty warm.

2016 Project366 (Day 172)

Running nuttersI didn’t have time to take a photo today as it is my first day back at work, followed by choir and it was a busy day!

Here is an additional photo from yesterday instead. Here is my sister and her husband just after they had completed a half marathon and she had got her PB.

Yes, her husband is wearing a pair of saggy y-fronts because he was promoting the y-front 10k they are organising for next week. I expect to see many more pairs of these saggy pants out on the streets next week. Lovely.
